Booked a night's stay in Jan 2013. Had a little trouble identifying the hostel as there were no signages, It was a private apartment with no intercom system at the entrance and the gate was passcode locked. I had to call whom I assumed was the reception to open the gate.
Was given the first room on the first floor, right next to the washing machines and water station. I wasn't asked to produce any form of identification or reservation confirmation and there was no formal check-in procedure. The guy who let me in only told me the price for the room and to pay in cash.
The room was small but it did not bother me. Had a terrible shock though when I first entered the toilet. The WC was choked with someone else's waste. Previous tenant did not flush, nor did the care taker of the hostel. This made me wonder if the room was even cleaned and if the bed sheets were changed. Door of the toilet was just a curtain and there was no where to hang your clothes. Walls of the room were thin, I could hear loud footsteps everytime someone walks past or if someone was using the washing machines. I was glad that a notice was placed near the machines stating to be considerate and use the machines tilll 10pm.
Wifi signal was zero in the room and poor along the corridor. Overall, I felt ripped off for the price I had to pay for such standard. I stayed in much better hostels at much cheaper rates. The only plus point about this hostel is the location. It is within walking distance to the Feng Jia Night Market. For me to stay there again, the rate I have to pay would have to drop by at least half.
